Southwick Podcast Team with EACS Board

The Allen County Public Library soon will offer audio podcasts of three children's books in English and Burmese to help Burmese children who are learning English.

The creation of the book podcasts, pre-recorded digital audio files grew out of efforts by Hessen Cassel branch library to aid teachers who had asked for assistance with helping Burmese children learning English. To create the podcasts, library staff used three children's books the library has in both English and Burmese. The library staff selected Michelle Niblick, teacher at Southwick Elementary School to read the English versions and Hser Moo, Burmese liaison to read the books in Burmese.

The recordings are being edited and should be available via the library's website in October. People can check out the books from the library so children can read along as they hear the book read aloud in either Burmese or English as they work toward reading and understanding English.
